- Abimbola is a Nigerian photographer who discovered a girl with unique eye colour
- She went to Mile 12 market to invite Peace the girl with the eyes for professional studio session but was stopped
- The other marketers convinced the girls mum that Abimbola was a kidnapper
The female photographer who found the unique eye-coloured girl shared details of her experience when she went back to Mile 12 market to ask the same girl for a photo shoot session.
According to the Abimbola, she wanted to give the girl a chance to become famous and successful by taking more shots of her which she believed the public would like following their reaction to the first one.
On reaching the market, Abimbola decided to explain her plans to the girl's mother. To her surprise other market women were jealous and convinced the woman to not let her daughter try her chance at possible success. Worst, Abimbola was tagged a kidnapper.
She said: "I can't believe how ignorant and envious people can be... I went to meet peace where her mum sells Ugwu and I was almost eaten raw by the Ugwu sellers there... I was so disoriented! Peace' Mum didn't complain, I already spoke with her Dad and he was grateful but these women couldn't hide their jealousy, they made a scene and almost tagged me a kidnapper...people started gathering. The envious Ugwu women said they saw her pictures everywhere on the internet that she was too young, I asked them if she was too young to be successful? These women were trying to convince her mum not to allow me take her to the studio for professional photos. They even blamed her for allowing me to take the pictures in the first place. That's when it became so obvious that it was jealousy!"
